  1. So in other words stop trying to impress everyone else and just do what you feel is right and do what you want to do. Set your own goals based of what you want to achieve and not what other expect of you. You cannot make everyone happy, you have to just work hard at trying your best.

      That’s true. You cannot make everyone happy. You just need to stop trying to and starting living and learning to know who matters.

    I think it is trying to say that there are a myriad of fears that drive the behavior of people.

    Some of the fears are more obvious and some are very hidden and not so obvious.

    The more fears you discover and rid yourself of, the better your life will be from an emotional standpoint – you will be light and happy.

    People will smile at you because you will be genuinely smiling from the inside.

    Without the weight of fears and negativity, you will automatically get more done every day.

    Should have added the first part that goes…

    Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward with your life.
